Hatsukokoro Kokugei Blue #1 Santoku 165mm



The latest knife line from our friends at Hatsukokoro.

Meet the Kokugei line of knives.

Great profile and weight makes this a fantastic choice for a carbon blade. 

Made in Tosa Japan. And incredibly well priced handmade knife. Don't be fooled by its lower price point, this knife has incredible longevity and use in any home or professional kitchen. Thicker spines, robust handles, ease of use - Pure KNIFE.

These knives are equipped with a Kurouchi finish, but will rust if left wet or dirty. Make sure to wipe down your knife to protect from oxidization. 

Due to the incredibly and meticulously handmade nature of these knives, we have noticed some variance in length, grind, and finish on these products. We are happy to accommodate sharpening requests and/or requests for pictures of the knives in stock before they are shipped. Thank you for your understanding.
